Secrets of Success

Putting Things In Perspective



i was speaking with a soldier from the army who told me that since his tour in iraq, he rarely feels rattled. why? b/c he tells himself - no one is shooting at me here.

i do not serve in the military but i still use this mantra as a way for me to put things in perspective. yes, sometimes there are pretty tough things that happen in my life, but you know what? no one is shooting at me. i can handle it & it will pass.

  • I am my worst enemy. Here I have lost weight. I am currently in a 12. So proud of my self....then I guess that Demon emoticon without a name said Oh NO You cannot do that. Am I afraid of losing weight? I have eaten like I have a tape worm. Like there is no tomorrow. People tell me how good I seems to have an adverse effect on me. Have bought a Halloween costume for work, now I'm afraid I won't be able to fit into the stupid dress!! emoticon Am I alone with these feelings? Is this something others have ever experienced? My own worst Enemy!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon - by MADEFORME2
